The All Progressives Congress (APC) has predictably won all the Chairmanship positions in the Saturday’s local council election in the state.
The Chairman of the Zamfara State Independent Electoral Commission (ZSIEC), Alhaji Garba Muhammad said on Sunday in Gusau that all the candidates of the party in the 14 councils had met all the provisions of the electoral law and had been declared winners of the election in their respective councils.
He claimed 14 political parties including Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) participated in the election.
The PDP, however, in a statement signed by its State Chairman, Alhaji Hassan Nasiha on eve of the election, said it was boycotting the election.
The party also said since it was still challenging the election of the Gov Abdulaziz Yari at the Supreme Court, it would, therefore, not participate in the election.
Muhammad commended all stakeholders, including security agencies, for ensuring the success of the election.
